We Love Colors Review

Wearing magenta nylon/lycra tights.

Today I have a very embarrassing video of myself, reviewing We Love Colors tights. Please do excuse all the erm-ing, & also the talking too fast, hehe. It's very nerve wracking to do videos!
I shall also sum up what I've said, for those of you that don't want to watch the video (which I do suggest you shouldn't, lol).
We Love Colors tights come in a range of 51 colors, for all sizes. They have patterned & plain coloured tights. I chose the navy, & rubine nylon/lycra plus size tights to review, they were kindly sent to me by the people @ We Love Colors. The navy was featured in my last outfit post, & the magenta is in today's. The navy is brighter than I was expecting, it's not really a true navy, more of a royal blue. The magenta is also much more pink than I thought it would be, I thought it would have more red in it, but it's really just a hot pink.
They are very soft, and also very comfortable. I found mine did slip down, leaving the area where the leg joins the seat of the tights visible, which was annoying. I'm not sure why the legs kept falling down, as the waistband stayed in place. Next time I could try sizing down like the size chart suggests I can.
The choice of colours is excellent, they have 51 colours to choose from, as well as fishnets, stripey & paint splash varieties. We Love Colors is definitely the place to go if you also love colours as much as they do! I've always found it hard to find tights that fit me, the only places being eBay & Simply Be, with their Viva La Diva brand. Most of these do come in just black/brown though, & if you really want coloured tights then We Love Colors is the only place I know of that will fit, if you are my size & larger.
However I probably wouldn't buy them again, the are quite expensive to import into the UK, with the shipping & also customs which often gets charged. I got charged over £10 for my pastel coloured ones I showed you a while ago, just in customs fees. For 4 pairs of tights it cost me around £60, incl shipping & customs, which isn't exactly cheap. It's not too much worse than the UK ones I buy though, the plain black ones being around £9 each. I also found they way they kept falling down really irritating, & this is the main reason I wouldn't buy them again.

  1. I think thats is the only negative point about them, they are not true to color. Even thought the colors are really pretty. Mine are falling down a little, but it`s not that bad, I just think that the once I ordered in july 2009 have had a bit higher quality, they were just a tiny bit thicker and through this, they had an even better fit.

    I like your outfit, its looked a bit 80ties, maybe because of the colors!

  3. Yes, the colours are hard to get exactly what you want. Haha, Katrin, I know! I was wearing it, think yay I look cool/or whatever, but then when I uploaded the photos I was a bit..oh dear, is that a bit too 80s?? :P I couldn't be bothered to take more photos with a different outfit, so 80s Georgina it is!

  4. I got a pair of black ones a few months ago but even thought they were the right size, they kept falling down too. :(

    It's so difficult to find good plus size tights.

    P.S.: I love that top!

  5. All I have to say is......


    YOU LOOK FABULOUS! I have some tights from them (I went with black) and I wasn't completely impressed either. I had issues with the sizing, I went for the size the chart recommended and they were too small!

  7. really into the entire color scheme here, including your hair/makeup and entire outfit. sorta 80s but fairy like somehow rather than neon.

  8. I've only ordered from them once & I was super disappointed with the items I got! The tights lost their shape about 2 minutes after putting them on, they were saggy in areas one does not want extra saggage in, they were itchy & felt cheap! I hated them! In fact, I think I only wore one pair of the 5 I purchased. SAD FACE!

    That said, I love your top!

  10. Tights are the bane of my existance, I love them but since I'm plus sized and quite tall they're pretty much impossible to come by.

    Thanks for the honest review, I'd hate to have paid so much for tights only to have them slip down!

    I have one pair of tights that fit me but also slide down when I need them I pull a Superman and wear a pair of knickers over them to hold them in place, lol

  11. Ahhh I hate British accents usually (cannot understand them) but I love yours! Nice review by the way. I do agree the tights are quite expensive.

  12. I think you look cool! I didn't watch video coz I can't play it on my iphone!

  13. I have 3 pairs from them - one is the recommended size according to the chart and the other two are a size bigger. The bigger pairs fall down a bit and get a bit baggy around the knees, but the smaller pair don't even get around my bum properly. So based on that I'd say you're probably better off with the slightly too big size... but maybe I just have an enormous bum compared to most plus sized girls.

    Also, totally off topic, but Gazel saying she hates british accents makes me paranoid as a british woman living in the same country as her. :S I get so down when people say they can't understand me!

  14. I love your top! I bought black tights from We Love Colors. They don't fall down on me, but I was surprised by how high they sat on my waist. I want to get a colored pair, but I'll definitely keep your comment in mind that they may not be the exact color I want. I liked the video blog :) Even the erms!

  15. It was fun watching the video of you. You looked cute saying 'erm' a lot=)
    I bought a pair of tights from We Love Colors in the suggested size, and either the rise was really long, or my bum is bigger than they expect or something like that, because the crotch area didn't really connect with my crotch area. That I could have lived with, but they got a hole in them the first time I used them, so that's a bigger problem. I should probably mention that most tights I put on get holes in them very quickly, but usually I don't pay quite so much for them, so...

  16. Where is the rest of your outfit from? I love the top! x

  17. where did you get your top from? its gorgeous!

  18. I love your outfit. you put together your outfits so well...and you've got vicious curves!

    Anyway, I got some we love tights and they fit okay, except for the fishnets I bought which I think they sent me the wrong size because I couldn't even pull them up. I wonder if they have like a huge warehouse with uncolored tights and just color them as they are ordered. anyway come and visit.

  21. Tights are the absolute bane of my life too, being a size 26-30 on my bottom half depending on where I shop. I cant get into Evan's tights at all. I despise them and they are so untrue to size. I have recently been using a site called Plus Size Tights.com

    http://www.plus-size-tights.com/

    They dont do much in the way of colours but you can have a pack of 2 40 denier black tights for 6.75 and I think they do free shipping and the size of them is great! They do tights up to 100" hips! Try em... I dont work for this place or anything lol I just know how difficult it is to get plus size tights!

  22. We Love Colors sincerely apologizes to everyone who has had an issue with a product. We strive to make sure that the items that we sell are up to par in terms of quality and comfort. We are also try to make sure that plus sized women have plenty of options in terms of color and are currently working on more patterns. We are still perfecting the plus size area of our products. It is hard for all sizing to be perfect because everyone is a different shape... the same goes for our non-plus sized items too! Ultimately if there are any issues concerning plus size please contact emem@welovecolors.com. If you ever have any suggestions then please send them to our Curvy Page on Facebook: www.tinyurl.com/WeLoveColorsCurvy

    We love hearing your feedback and thank you for helping to make We Love Colors the best it can be!

    :)

  23. you MUST check out John Lewis own brand tights. at 5'11 and a size 22/24 i really struggled with tights, they'd end up rolling/falling down/leaving unsightly lumps and bumps, but their tights come in quite a few colours, are really *really* soft, nice and thick, and pull right up to the bra, giving that snug all-tucked-in feeling! because they're so thick and stretchy too, they last ages. i only just got my first crotch hole in a pair i have had almost a year and worn a lot!

  24. I don't have a plus-sized pair, just a normal one, in Splash Color n7214 and they keep falling, too even in the right size. it's soooo annoyng.
    I never washed them yet, so I'm gonna see if with the first washing maybe they get more easy-to-wear, but I don't think so.
    It's a big problem, they should really do something for it.
